The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated.

To find the right forever pet for you:

You can view our available dogs and cats online, or visit with them in person at our shelter.

We are located at 177 County Road 10 in Ridgway, Colorado.

We are open to the public Tuesday through Saturday 11 AM – 5:30 PM.

We adopt on a first-come, first-served basis. We don’t allow pet holds.

Our adoption fees vary depending on the age of the pet.

  • Dogs under 7 years old: $200
  • Dogs over 7 years old: $100
  • Puppies under 6 months old: $300
  • Cats under 7 years old: $100
  • Cats over 7 years old: $50

All pets adopted from Second Chance are microchipped, spayed or neutered, and will have age-appropriate vaccinations.

Be prepared to bring your new pet home.

All adopted dogs will be leaving with Martingale collars and an engraved ID tag with the new owner’s info on it. This is included in the adoption fee. Please bring a leash.

Cats will need a carrier to go home with you.
